The Saints chief records Officer Pius Bamwange has confirmed to RedPepper Online edition that the match will kick off at 1600Hrs and the team will use it to boost their chances of returning to the top slots ahead of the Rwenzori group log after two disastrous results against Baza Holdings and Ndejje University.
“It is an important match for us since we have another opportunity to show great results. The team is ready for action despite the last fixture unfortunate style from our opponents that left our players demoralized,” Saints head coach Hussien Mbalangu said in a phone chat.
